$query = mysql_query("INSERT INTO mpoll_results (question,numberofoptions,opt1,opt2,opt3,opt4,opt5,opt6,opt7,opt8,opt9,opt10,count1,count2,count3,count4,count5,count6,count7,count8,count9,count10,totalvotes) VALUES($question,$numberofoptions,$opt1,$opt2,$opt3,$opt4,$opt5,$opt6,$opt7,$opt8,$opt9,$opt10,$count1,$count2,$count3,$count4,$count5,$count6,$count7,$count8,$count9,$count10,$totalvotes)") or die(mysql_error());

I'm making an AJAX poll script, but I ran into a brick wall here, sort of. I'm using some quick values I came up with so the script has something to work with. Unfortunately, I get the followng MYSQL error instead of the script continueing.

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Question,10,Option 1,Option 2,Option 3,Option 4,Option 5,Option

Anyone know what the problem is?

If the server is running on your localhost try using something like:

C:\>mysql -h localhost -u user -p

Then when asked for your password insert it.connect to the right databse with the following command:

USE (databasename);

Then try to add the information to your database simular to the following:

INSERT INTO (table) (last_name, first_name) VALUES('Stein','Waldo');

Replace (table) with your table the () also need to go.Ore use:

I ment it should look something like this:

INSERT INTO mpoll_results (question, numberofoptions, opt1, opt2, opt3, opt4, opt5, opt6, opt7, opt8, opt9, opt10, count1, count2, count3, count4, count5, count6, count7, count8, count9, count10, totalvotes) VALUES('question','numberofoptions','opt1','opt2','opt3','opt4','opt5','opt6','opt7','opt8','opt9','opt10','count1','count2','count3','count4','count5','count6','count7','count8','count9','count10','totalvotes');

See if I got the table name right couse I couldn't figure out what "& #40" ment.Ruud Hermans
